Sheffield Children's University

The Children's University is a national organisation (with a Sheffield team based within the Local Authority) that recognises, through its presentation of certificates, the invovlement of children in out-of-school-hours learning activity.  It focuses on rewarding participation, raising aspirations and encouraging engagement with learning.

Our HoLA (Home Languages Accreditation) Project works with Sheffield Children's University to record the attendance and achievements of our participating learners who learn their home languages in their community schools. Through the joint effort of HoLA and Sheffield CU, our bilingual children's interest in learning their home languages are boosted which in return increases their self-esteem and confidence in and out of school.
